Getting started with Squared Up
Everything you need as you set off on your path to glory
Welcome to Enterprise Application Monitoring
First of all, congratulations! You are now the proud owner of a Squared Up free trial. You're just minutes away from transforming your SCOM environment into a complete enterprise IT visualization platform. Top work.
Goodbye unnecessary email alerts. Sayōnara reporting difficulties. Adios monitoring noise.
With Squared Up you've finally got the tools you need to put all that rich SCOM data into action. Whatever your dashboarding requirements, we've got you covered; from Visio integration to performance graphing, from our awesome donut tile to SLA gauges - there's a bunch of visualizations to choose from. And once you've conquered our dashboarding world, next up is VADA...
Sure, Application Performance Management (APM) tools offer a lot of promise, but with enterprise IT typically responsible for hundreds or even thousands of applications - this is where our unique Visual Application Discovery & Analysis (VADA) technology comes in. VADA leverages your existing SCOM agents to perform on-demand detection of network activity, correlating this with component level discoveries to automatically determine true application dependencies. The result: accurate, up-to-date maps of your business applications across your infrastructure, load balancers, websites, services, databases and servers.
Now all that juicy SCOM data is in the context of your key applications and services.
We’re big SCOM fans. It’s one of the most powerful infrastructure monitoring tools on the planet, yet - without context - all that juicy data will often fall by the wayside. Not anymore. With Squared Up you can cut through all the noise put all your monitoring data in the context of your key applications and services. Helping you surface the right information at the right time to all your users.
The widget below provides a brief summary for all the core features included in an EAM license.
Fast, modern HTML5
The user interface that SCOM deserves - blazing fast, easy to learn and accessible from any browser. A truly modern user experience that engages everyone with your monitoring data.
Visual Application Discovery & Analysis
At the heart of our Enterprise Application Monitoring solution is the ground-breaking VADA technology. VADA leverages the SCOM agent to dynamically map your applications across your infrastructure.
It takes minutes to create dashboards using our fully interactive designer. We've also made sure you don't need to be a SCOM expert, so specialists across your IT organisation can build the views they need.
Out-of-the-box application dashboards allow you to rapidly deliver meaningful, end-to-end application monitoring to stakeholders across your organisation.
Share unlimited dashboards with an unlimited number of users. Open Access renders dashboards on the server-side and so you can provide your users with access to the latest data at no extra cost.
The SLA gauge visualization uses the built-in SCOM Service Level Tracking feature to report on application and server uptime so you can report on service levels and downtime.
Fire up Visio, open or create any diagram you can imagine, associate with SCOM objects, applications and groups using Visio shape data and then import into Squared Up as a completely custom dashboard.
One of the core visualisations, the line charts have been carefully designed to deliver clarity, style and functionality for your SCOM data warehouse performance data.
Often used with the 'top N' reporting features, bar charts allow you to quickly focus on key resource usage metrics such as disk space and network utilisation.
Advanced matrix visualizations
Saving the best until last, the Matrix tile combines multiple visualisations into compact, data-rich grids giving you at-a-glance dashboards for every scenario.
Almost every enterprise or cloud product these days has a web-based API, and the WebAPI tile enables you to integrate data from those products directly into your dashboards.
